in this country. this should not be news to anyone on capitol hill. it is certainly not news to anyone in america who was not in a coma during the campaign season. lou: senate majority leader kerry read with a much different take on his meeting with the treasury secretary. an almost gleeful harry reid told republicans to put specific revenues on the table, even as republicans continue to wait for the democtic party and specific spending cuts on the table. >> i had a nice meeting with secretary geithner this morning. i always enjoy meeting with him. democrats are all on the same page. republicans know where we stand. we have sete and said it so many times, and the president has said the same thing. it has been weeks, at least two weeks since we met at the white house. and we are still waiting for a serious offer from the republans. now is the time for the republicans to move past this happy talk about revenues and put specifics on the table. lou: there is very little talk and none of it has been particularly happy on either side. the president and speaker boehner talked by phone last night. in a c

which is what we're doing. i don't think, i'm not confident that america will get to grips with it, how about you? >> i'm confident that measured america will come to grips with it. as we know, friedman said over and over again, government spending is taxation, governments don't create resources, they redistribute. and when government spending is high you've got a high tax bill and you wonder why the economy's growing so slowly and little chance that we'll get a major reform in spending over the next two years, and i think after the 2014 elections, stuart, happy to be an american and think you'll see a major shift politically and prosperity is going to be there. it just wasn't our time this time, but it will be in the future. >> i'm always happy to be in america, i ain't leaving, just-- >> i question, we need you here badly. we need you badly. you're just coming of age as you said a little bit earlier at 72, i feel i'm just a spring chicken. what can i tell you? >> wait a minute, you're 72, no. >> yes, i am. stuart: talk my astonishment as a huge compliment, art laffer, incredible. you

of spoiling christmas for everyone. >> if congress does nothing h every family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1st. i'm assuming that doesn't sound too good to go. that's sort of like the lump of coal you get for christmas. that's a scrooge christmas. >> but you forget, mr. president, republicans like coal. in fact, moments after that speech, house speaker john boehner emerged with his own unique brand of humbug. >> there's a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. i'm not trying to make this more difficult. if you've watched me over the last three weeks, i have been very a guarded in what i have to say. >> now, now, now, you know how this works. santa doesn't bring you anything unless you write down specifically what you want, something republicans patently refuse to do. instead, mr. boehner fell back on a plan that he keeps trotting out and that americans keep voting down. >> well, you can look at our budget from the last two years and there are plenty of specific proposals, most of which were part of the conversation that the president and i had
to break out of the strangle hold, look like it's standing up for america, they will come to the table with the president. >> and one thing that i do think -- i don't know if norquist deserves credit, but i'm struck when i step back and look at where the tax debate is today. both democrats and republicans agree that we should keep 80% of the bush tax rates. bush tax cuts, i'm sorry. it's just the top percent that should change. even democrats today are closer to the bush consensus on taxes than to the clinton consensus on taxes. so do you think this conversation has moved to the right? or were the rates too high for this moment when the middle class is struggling. >> i wouldn't say that a consensus to reduce taxes on the middle class and increase taxes on the rich is a move to the right. it's actually a move to the left. what people are becoming more sensitive to is inequality of income and wealth and opportunity and power in this country is wider than it has been in about 85 to 100 years. therefore, it's appropriate and necessary to raise taxes on the rich and reduce the tax burden on
the pledge, it essentially led to newt gingrich and the contract for america and we have been living in this gingrich contract for america, grover norquist tea party state of the republican party since then and so far, they have only been engaging in what grover called impure thoughts, which i love that's how he thinks of it, but just the very fact they would openly question the pledge is to remarkable because essentially lowers tax rates is the only thing republicans have stood for in recent elections. >> cane was using this very cute trick that republicans first starting using. they started floating this thing about oh, that pledge was made for another congress. i didn't seen it again thr the election that i yus won a year ago or two weeks ago, whatever the case may be and so peter king didn't invent that. >> that's something that grover was rebuffed. you can opt out. >> once you're in, that's it. >> yes. >> but look, the big good news for progressives here, there are two fund mamental values that he driven the economic conversation for republicans in this era. one is deficit is th
changers across america. jim, we love you! come over here! >> bill karins -- oh, no, speaking of -- >> what? >> we call him c.g. for -- >> no, we don't. >> c.g., what do we got? >> now i've got to think of something creative for what c.g. stands for. snow is falling in a few areas this morning, we're looking at new jersey, looks like the suburbs outside philadelphia and new york could see snow. getting ready to treat a lot of those roads. a lot of that eco friendly rock salt. let's show you what's happening on the radar, the pink is where it's a little bit of a mix and the green is the rain. we've set up the boundary line somewhere north of philadelphia and just north of new york city. below that, it's kind of a mix or rainy around philadelphia. little later today, once the colder air moves in, we will see philadelphia changing over to snow. it's not a huge storm, this isn't a big ocean storm, not a nor'easter, a quick event during the daylight hours today. and the temperatures are pretty warm right now. new york city still above 40 degrees, philadelphia near 40, big cities and the airports
there across america who are saying, you know what we really need, we really need people to fight hard night and day to sidetrack secretary of state potential candidate because of some things she said on -- maybe there's people out there. i don't know where they are because i've never met them but do want to know this. like what's their long game, willie? what are they doing? this doesn't help the republican party. it's like mitt romney's dumb press conference the day after libya exploded and the ambassador died. there is a time and place -- there are so many ways to go after susan rice. >> and there are real questions on whether she even has the temperament to be secretary of state. that's a big question in washington, d.c. let me say it again. does susan rice have the temperament to be secretary of state? there are a lot of people, democrats who will tell you privately that just maybe she doesn't. but we're not talking about this. this is a clown show that's going on right now. what is -- >> i love that debate. >> well, the long game is unclear and the short game is even more unclear becau

. our government gave the people of america gave the government to the status quo. we are back to where we started in septmber. the president has a huge do over, and it is his obligation to leave history this. republicans have said we are willing to talk about revenue, but democrats have to be serious on spending. so this idea that anne has the upper hand is exactly why a deal is not been done. the deal as on the teeseven deal is only as good a it is for both parties. the agreement is honored in the breach. the fact of the matter is the president wants to jump off the cliff. he is not taking republicans with him because the republican party is going to stay true to their principles, but we are able to compromise if there is good faith on the other side. gerri: well, an interesting comment today from the spokesman saying obama should target congressional democrats whwant to raise taxes on small business. here's what he had to ay. democrats control -- continue to rule out spending cuts. the target of the president's rally should be the congressional democrats who want to raise taxes on sm
there is a significant bloc of republicans in the house who, frankly, might make that kind of a terrible deal for america, and you teed it up exactly right. you're talking about middle class households at risk of a couple thousand dollars increase in their tax liability if the bush tax cuts expire for them. this is the 98% of households that everyone agrees on. and i think the president has a pretty strong point when he says in the interest of the economy and in the interest of the broad middle class, in the interest of an economy that's beginning to show some momentum and recovery, why not agree on that part right away? i mean, we can squabble about the other 2% of households anytime we want. so i think the white house is very smart, both politically and economically, to be pressing that part of the argument. >> jared bernstein, julian epstein, ken vogel, gentlemen, thank you so much. before we go to break, a note on that photo we shared just a few moments ago. a picture posted by mitt romney to his facebook page this thanksgiving weekend. his caption read in part, much to be thankful for this year. a g
